  • Honda pays $15mil for Team Andretti to IRL

    Just announced on a SoCal radio sports show. They said that Andretti and teammate Dario Judd will race in the IRL and Honda will pay the team $15million. They said that this info is coming from the Indianapolis star, but I don't see anything on their website. None of this suprisises me, but I didn't think it would leak out this soon.
    "IRL" ... what IS that anyway?

    As an accussed roadracer-hater, I find this to be very good news should it be true.

                  Back to the topic...

                  Do you think this will be widely covered by the Media at the CART race this weekend??

                  I would think that it would take away from the good press CART is geting this weekend.

                        To Carl in the Desert......If Honda is paying that much just to lure to the IRL, try to imagine what they will spend in advertising it. With an intention to MAKE money, I am positive they'll kick it up a notch.

                        With Toyota and Honda on board, IRL marketing will be like an attack on pearl harbour but this will be for good, not evil. These guys have drug the CART corpse around for a couple of years now, they still do.... Imagnine what they will do with INDY and the IRL?

                            I hope you're right
                            I don't know if my sensorium can handle "main-line marketing" of our series.
                            If they do I hope our leaders diversify and don't just lay back to let Honda & Toyota be the sum total of growing the series.

                              He's probably thinking that in a couple of years it will be just as hard for him to stay in the IRL as it would have been for him to get into CART back in 1995.
